SUSAN SONTAG'S FAVOURITE FILMS

By: Kenji

Susan Sontag, the distinguished and well-known U.S writer, cultural commentator, film-maker …

From different top 10s over the years, including for Sight & Sound, John Kobal’s poll in the last 80s, a Russian poll in 1995 (thanks to Angel for that), also a selection of 50 in the 70s, a late selection of 30 (thanks to José Sarmiento), also some selections for a Japanese season. Any others please.

She came to rate Mizoguchi very highly- more highly than Kurosawa who is better represented here. Anyone know which other films by him should be listed here?

    Thanks for that. I'm adding YI Yi to the list as top of its year; adding the others would unbalance the list towards that year,
